Love these threads and some good pics on here as always. I can add another couple of regs to the mix - please excuse quality as these are old scans and I haven't done anything to them. First is G-BNHD displayed here at Farnborough '88: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49460941763_70313158bc_b.jpg...

"...As the former editor of an antique-airplane magazine..." he should know that stealing your photograph is wrong!
